Into the Wild Festival news: Book of the Week – Silence – Episode 2 – BBC Sounds

Latest update from Into the Wild

"For me, silence in nature is of the highest value. That is where I feel most at home. I believe it's possible for everyone to discover this silence within themselves.

We live in the age of noise. Silence is almost extinct.” Philosopher and adventurer Erling Kagge, the first person to reach the ‘three poles’ of North, South and the summit of Everest, explores the power of silence.

Struck by a vague angst about his constant need for distraction and reluctance to hold still for a single moment, the explorer asks how we lost silence and where we might go to find it again.

Theres this beautiful book called 'Silence' by Norwegian explorer, Erling Kagge, being shared on radio 4 "book of the week" this week. This is Chapter 2 but you can listen to the whole thing on the website.

Be quiet, be very quiet!
